High school career and technical education (CTE) programs can provide students with academic knowledge (e.g., career-oriented courses, dual enrollment), technical skills, & certifications (e.g., industry-recognized credentials), as well as real-world work experience (e.g., career academies, internships, youth apprenticeships). CTE participation is associated with higher graduation rates and better employment outcomes. House Bill 2171 and Senate Bill 703 would make Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAPs), which are currently optional, required for public school students prior to entering the 9th grade. Additionally, high school students would be required to announce their post-graduation plans prior to graduation. Lastly, these bills would require the state to provide the “means and capability” for high school students who are participating in CTE programs to learn about and apply for federal aid available under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). House Bill 1928 would modify an existing CTE-related requirement relating to the visiting scholars program. House Bill 2731 and Senate Bill 1055 would expand the Dual Credit Scholarship Fund to include Dual Enrollment Scholarships allowing high school students to enroll in coursework at colleges/universities.
